New Delhi Legendary superstar Amitabh Bachchan says its disheartening to see music artists performing at gatherings, where people disrespect them by not paying attention to their artistry. "I see many a moment when the professionals play at gatherings. They come to exhibit their artistry, not to be a replacement for piped music at a lavish wedding or a party. It is most disrespectful when I see that happening. I cringe, he said. "I almost feel like reprimanding the guests, but do not. I would rather wish that the artists wind up their instruments and leave. Years and years of 'tapasya' for this? No that does not impress me. Allow them to sink into their gift and give an opportunity to be a part of that emotion. The 69-year-old says, its an ordeal to watch artists putting their heart and soul into their performances even when people ignore their craft. "They look for appreciation, search for that one individual that shall show admiration of their craft but alas it never comes.. circumstances lead them to continue.. others with greater self respect and dignity, stop, announce their intent and either get the interest or leave. I would applaud such an occurrence," he said.
